Allyl Lactide (cat# AM08) now available

New Product, PolyScitech (www.polyscitech.com) is proud to provide allyl lactide monomer. This monomer is useful for the generation of side-chain modified PLA’s such as cationic polylactide created by thiol-ene click reaction.

"Well‐Defined Degradable Cationic Polylactide as Nanocarrier for the Delivery of siRNA to Silence Angiogenesis in Prostate Cancer." Advanced healthcare materials 1, no. 6 (2012): 751-761. 

“Abstract: Well-defined tertiary amine-functionalized cationic polylactides (CPLAs) are synthesized by thiol-ene click functionalization of an allyl-functionalized polylactide, and utilized for the delivery of interleukin-8 (IL-8) siRNA via CPLA-IL-8 siRNA nanoplexes. The CPLAs possess remarkable hydrolytic degradability, and their cytotoxicity is relatively low. The CPLA-IL-8 siRNA nanoplexes can be readily taken up by prostate cancer cells, resulting in significant IL-8 gene silencing. It is found that the degradability and cytotoxicity of CPLAs, as well as the transfection efficiency of the CPLA-IL-8 siRNA nanoplexes, positively correlate with the amine mol% of CPLAs.
